employee now the first step is for the full-time people to get the hours and there's a tension between allowing employers to be able to operate the way they can to have a successful business versus you know giving a lot of rights to employees there's a balancing act but how does that work things like christmastime and things like that we're about to head up but certainly a true definition of retail workers and people shopping for kids how do you think about that and balancing that right there. >> i know that for apartment workers many of them that we've informed our legislation from say that sometimes employers will offer hours to temp workers that's the consideration in our
definition of fair neutrons for apartment workers not just any job in jobs are different from apartment workers that's the hours with the same qualifications with the same type of job i think the office of lash enforcement will have to look at it but that's my understanding the employer could offer that to a different working but the same qualifications and experience levels that apartment worker should have the right to those hours not a temp worker or someone to create nor apartment workers when many of the apartments workers need those hours to pay and support their family. >> i totally appreciate that again, i question around a full-time person does that go to
permeate people that's not the staffing model what with it looks like this is my question. >> and then we're not talking about small businesses but large clangz like the one in candle stick point and in the mall or the gap or different types of employers that can give more hours to part time workers. >> so. >> few other things contractors of formula retail folks so the macy's hires a janitorial staff that's not a formula retail organization is that the question for the da or whether it applies to the smaller entity because it applies to the major retailer. >> it is going to apply to
custodial theirs part of the janitorial entity and like those folks the custodial workers need rights and this provides that level of security four many of the hard working custodians. >> so the custodian team they're there. >> i did want to clarify that the requirements for let's see for property service contractors perform security are in the chiu and the mar so it's consistent as well. >> okay and just out of curiosity i understand that maybe this was a committee last weekend that kind
of the waving for alcoholic bargaining was taken out i understand that exists in other ordinances just terms of policy prospective on having that out to understand - and so we wanted to legislation to be as board and covered as possible taking that waiver out for collective bargaining agreement was important and covering hass as many as possible and local 2 brought up the small number of employees in the hotel who are employees of the hotel not for example, soft story building that is in the hilton that's one of the important ones that as people testify i'll be working closely with the coalitions and the city attorney to craft something that is clear legislation. >> i think that makes sense
what you were talking about i had a few other questions and appreciate our indulge of my ramming up literally open the topic here in the legislation and i know supervisor avalos has other questions. >> i will make two motions first is to remove the addressing the 2 hundred employee or they recalled for worker retention provisions in the mar, carmen chu or supervisor campos legislation that's one motion. >> sorry clarify added in. >> that was added in on wednesday and my motion is to remove that second is supervisor avalos at wednesday meeting moved to change the 20 employee or more
threshold the definition of employer in into owners to one so it went from 20 to one from my understanding and my motion is to add that 20 employee or more threshold back in and the rational for me it will help some of the smaller franchises and there's data that i know marsha restraining order hospital from supervisor chiu's office or working to show there's a relatively small number of employees that is impacted and along with president chiu harding this back in to 20 is a critical part especially for those types of small franchises that are being sensitive to our legislation. >> actually, i, second the first
amendment i really don't understand the rational for going back up to the threshold of 20 anyhow mecca that work we want to be able to establish retention policies and predictable scheduling in small businesses through this legislation. >> formula retail i don't see the size of the business it should matter when overriding policy is to build retention policies for scheduling why shouldn't he apply to those businesses because their smaller seems like the workers will have the same need of predictability if we're creating a position where the scheduling is enhancing the employment
capacity of the store or the franchise it is a policy we want to create we want to create better jobs we're doing that it is two-fold i'm not clear why we want to weaken the legislation. >> if i could through the chair respond. >> i'll just say i won't speak for president chiu but a difference of employees with h and m or jay crew that can transfer employees across different stores from downtown to the san francisco westerfield center but when it's a franchise like a mcdonald or k f c that hazard employees for that franchise it's a different story they can't have the employees coming from the other franchise it's a small number and makes sense given the smaller picture
of moving forward with the legislation that flexibility for those types of franchises. >> okay supervisor you have two motions and the third around the six months effective date i'm in agreement from a number of speakers from the public six months effective date but not on the six months ramp up that's a discussion based on decide from the office of economic workforce development and on that was the original lead in the legislation to me it makes sense to extend that to six months but not nor the ramp up to eliminate the six months ramp up period. >> so to be clear six months ramp up now a 9 - >> mr. iga in her.
>> john gibner, deputy city attorney so going into the last wednesday the ordinance had a months paragraph active day not going into effect until months later an amendment made on wednesday extend it back to 6 months the entire amendment not practitioner all until the six months period supervisor mar wants to keep that an additional contemplate once the ordinance becomes app operative the vice president can't issue penalties and supervisor mar is proposing today to eliminate the second six months. >> okay. i appreciate that. >> so supervisor mar a total of 3 amendments.
>> okay supervisor avalos what would be your presence to do roll diddling. >> yeah. >> i don't want to support the 20 they recalled. >> okay. so colleagues from my prospective just as we've talked about this ordinance i'm getting up to speed in committee i know it's a committee report to be heard tomorrow i would say i'll be confront into this discussions as i've talked with people i; right have no doubt there's been a lot of feedback and the final strokes you have merit to continue to work on that from a labor side and american people employer side but i understand the desire to move that forward and this makes sense as well so i'm happy from my perspective
i'll be supporting outline your amendments but i don't know about the items for tomorrow i'm happy to support a no recommendation coming out of committee and do it with recommendation i'll reserve my ability to vote yes or no madam clerk can we do a roll call vote on supervisor mar's legislation individually. >> motion one by supervisor mar supervisor mar so this is a motion to remove adding the 2 had had they recalled for worker retention provisions in the supervisor mar supervisor campos ordinance and on that motion. >> supervisor mar supervisor avalos supervisor farrell there 3 i's. >> okay motion passes. >> and motion number 2 is to
change the 20 employee or the one employee or more up to or more as a threshold in 9 definition the employer in both ordinances my motion to change that back to 20 the original. >> on that motion. >> supervisor mar supervisor avalos no supervisor farrell 2 i's one no. >> that motion passes and my last motion the third one to change the operative date from months to have months which is what we did but to remove the 6 month ramp up period that goes after the operative dated for both ordinances. >> on that motion supervisor mar supervisor avalos supervisor farrell there are 3 i's and that motion
passes par so supervisor mar those items again your call or supervisor avalos with recommendation or without. >> i support the underlying ordinances and will follow supervisor mar's lead on that so i'd like prefer to send it out with recommendation with a vote and thank my colleagues and the city attorney's office for all the work and i know there will be further decision to with a positive recommendation as a committee reporter for the board meeting tomorrow november 18, 2014, okay. we have a motion that i supervisor mar roll call vote. >> supervisor mar supervisor avalos supervisor farrell no there are 2 i's one no. >> okay items pass. >> they can colleagues

district but supervisor cohen as well and a lot of the out lying neighborhoods and the idea is that we would like to explore the ways that we can better shuttle our residents through certain transit nodes and whether it be local such as through the west portal or a regional connection, such as to the bart and call train and so i am hoping to also address some of the emerging needs that do exist as well, such as with the taxi industry or even the ride sharing industry and how we can be really proactive and thinking about how we manage some of those programs. and so, we of course, look forward to working with the ta in developing a scope for this strategic analysis, report. and hoping to receive a scope by december, and look forward to again, looking with our ta staff and our community and in developing this, with that, i submit. >> great. >> see if there is any members of the public that would like to speak? >> would you like to make a comment?
